When Divine Fortune Strikes At Golden Nugget NJ, Someone Walks Away With $240K

Posted By Kim Yuhl on June 12, 2018

Picking the huge progressive jackpot game seems to be a winning strategy for Amy from North New Jersey. She saw the six-figure amount on the game tab, played for a few days, and then hit big.

She turned a $2 bet into $240,026.

The jackpot was the largest it has been all year and was ready to pay off for one lucky player.

Amy began playing online at Golden Nugget just 10 days prior to her big win. Some might call it beginner’s luck and others might call it “divine” intervention.

This is one of eight Divine Fortune jackpots hit in New Jersey this year. Three of the eight jackpots went to Golden Nugget online casino players. Golden Nugget also paid out $50,735 and $115,705 in Divine Fortune jackpots.

The fact that nearly one-half of the NJ Divine Fortune jackpot payouts happened at Golden Nugget isn’t a surprise. Golden Nugget’s online casino is the No. 1 online casino destination in the Garden State.

How to play Divine Fortune

Players with a love of classical Greek mythology will love exploring golden temples while overcoming challenges. The slot game is beautifully designed with wilds and free spins to increase your chances of walking among the gods.

Typical 5×3 reels and 20 paylines are available with the addition of three progressive jackpots:

  • The Minor (smallest)
  • The Major (mid-sized)
  • The Mega (largest)

The Mega often posts jackpots in the tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars as was the case with Amy’s win.

Medusa, the snake-haired mythological creature is joined by three other characters:

  • Minotaur (the bull)
  • Phoenix (the bird)
  • Nemean Lion (the lion)

The base game places the playing cards Jack through to Ace on the reel and awards small wins of up to 80 coins. Find one of the four mythological beasts and win up to 600 coins. Your chance of claiming the big prize increases with your bet size — so bet big.

Keep an eye out for Pegasus, the winged horse. Pegasus is the wild symbol. There are other engaging features to the game such as Falling Wild, Wild on Wild, Free Spins, Bonus Coin, and of course, the Jackpot Bonus.

The good thing about Golden Nugget online casino

As mentioned earlier, Golden Nugget online casino is the top NJ online casino destination. It offers a vast selection of desktop (500+) and mobile (350+) games, the most of any online casino. In fact, Golden Nugget was the first NJ online casino to hit 500 games. Players only need to be located in the Garden State to log in and play their way to winning.

Golden Nugget does not take being No. 1 for granted. They are adding new games weekly and payout more than $100 million in prizes every month.

Players have responded to Golden Nugget’s game variety and payout rates by increasing wagers 81 percent in 2017 compared to 2016.

Thomas Winter, senior vice president and general manager of Online Gaming at Golden Nugget, said this in a press release:

“We added no less than 136 new games in 2017. This year will be no different and in the last few weeks we’ve already launched innovative games such as Live Dealer Casino Hold’em, Slingo and Virtual Sports. Our market-leading offer, more than ever, positions GoldenNuggetCasino.com as the online destination of choice for authentic casino players.”

Lately, all the focus is on Hard Rock Atlantic City and Ocean Resort Casino as they march ever closer to opening their doors on the Boardwalk on June 28.

Amy winning a life-changing amount of money playing online slots just goes to show you that not all the action is in Atlantic City.


Be like Amy.
